NONLINEAR CALCULATION OF BREAKING AND NON-BREAKING WAVES BEHIND A TWO-DIMENSIONAL HYDROFOIL

A finite-difference method is used in conjunction with a numerical mapping technique to compute the two-dimensional unsteady potential flow generated by a submerged hydrofoil in motion below a free surface. Nonlinear boundary conditions are employed for a foil moving horizontally at constant speed and angle of attack. The time-dependent irrotational flow of the incompressible fluid about the hydrofoil is augmented by the solution of an auxiliary potential flow problem used to ensure that the Kutta condition is satisfied at the trailing edge.
